Youth Choirs from Suffolk

For children of all ages, was there ever a better musical guide than Benjamin Britten? Whether playing, singing or listening to his pieces, he unlocks the lid of the classical music treasure chest. The BBC Symphony Orchestra presents a selection of his wonderful music for young people in a one hour concert for all the family.

Featuring his last ever piece (written for Suffolk schoolchildren), some fizzing arrangements of Rossini tunes and his famous guide to the family of orchestral instruments, the concert also includes four brand new choral songs written for the Britten centenary by professional and talented teenage composers. What better way to celebrate the music of the talented Suffolk schoolboy who turned out to be one of best and most famous of all English composers?
